Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport - Will Hen­shaw

Clyde boss Barry Fer­gu­son has been a busy man since the sea­son ended af­ter sign­ing sev­eral play­ers and let­ting more go.

The club have con­firmed that Jamie Bar­clay, Michael Daly, Ryan Frances, David Gray, Iain Gray, Fraser McGhee, Craig McLeish, Stephen O’Don­nell, Keigan Parker, Ged Traynor and Kevin Watt are all leav­ing Clyde as well as Steven McDougall, Scott McManus and Alan Martin.

The list of play­ers who sur­vived the cull and will be stay­ing on for next sea­son are Scott Durie, Scott Fer­gu­son, David Marsh, Mark McLaugh­lin, Scott McLaugh­lin, Brian McQueen, Hugh Mur­ray and Mark Roberts.

For­mer Rangers cap­tain Barry said: “Telling play­ers they are be­ing re­leased is al­ways the most dif­fi­cult task for any manager and I’m no ex­cep­tion.

“All of the play­ers on the list gave me hon­esty and com­mit­ment and I would like to thank them per­son­ally for their ser­vice to the club and wish them all the best for the fu­ture.”

And many play­ers have al­ready joined the Bully Wee as their re­place­ments. De­fender Chris Smith (26) has signed on from Stir­ling Al­bion.

An­other de­fender in the shape of Michael Bolo­choweckyj (31) has also joined from East Stir­ling.

Chris Mitchell (26), who can play in de­fence or mid­field, has also joined from Queen of the South. Wing back Scott Lin­ton (25) and striker Archie Camp­bell (24) will also join from Dum­bar­ton.

Of the sign­ings, Barry said: “Chris (Smith) is a cen­tre half who’s played at a good level through­out his ca­reer.

“Michael Bolo­choweckyj has a huge amount of ex­pe­ri­ence at our level of foot­ball.

“Chris Mitchell is an all round good foot­baller and he can play in sev­eral po­si­tions in mid­field or at the back.”

The club have also an­nounced de­tails of their Celeb Am Golf Day at Wester­wood Golf and Coun­try Club on Fri­day, June 5.

The club say they aim to raise around £8000 on the day which is crit­i­cal to their on­go­ing devel­op­ment plans on and off the pitch.
